Question power step wiring

I have a 2003 class c with a power step. However the step works when it wants. I have bypassed the control module and I can get the step in and out with a jumper wire. How can i install/wire a switch to make this work untill I can get a replacement module? There are 2 wires to the step, 1 for power and 1 I ground and the step will go out. when I reverse the wires the step will go in. thanks

You will need a good 30 amp rated double pole, double throw momentary rocker switch; the same as is used for the front landing jacks on a fifth wheel. The power and ground go on the end terminals of the switch with cross over conductors that switch the polarity to the opposite side at the other end of the switch so it looks like an X and the middle terminals are connected to the motor. When one side of the toggle is depressed the motor gets one polarity and when the other side of the toggle is depressed the voltage polarity is reversed. Good luck and keep us posted.

I must have not done something right. When I activate the switch I have power on 4 terminals out of 6 when checked with test light
